The Raptors have lost 9, count em NINE in a row, and STILL have the 7th playoff seed as of right now.


Only one team in the East is 8-2 in its last 10 games (New Jersey), while 5 teams in the West are 8-2 over their last 10.


If the playoffs were to start today, three teams in the East would be below .500 (and way below at that), while all the West teams headed for the playofs are better than .500. The team just outside making the playoffs in the West is at .500.



This is just fuckin pitiful. Yeah, the Nets had their little 14 game winning streak, but then they played the T'Wolves and Lakers and lost both games.


Respond how you want, as this thread is more of an observation while checking the standings....

good to see that having a salary cap for teams levelled the playing field.

The cap doesn't matter if players are willing to play for less to win a championship. Is a couple extra million really worth playing on a shit team if all you want is a ring?

Yeah it's been like this for a few years, it always changes though.

I don't know why but it seems to happen a lot, especially in Basketball.

^I think the NFC won the super bowl like 15 years in a row.

Also, it seems in basketball, because there aren't that many players, they can load up talent just by getting 2 or 3 stars together and filling in the rest with guys who would completely suck without the main men. Unlike in football, where you have 22+ positions to fill and a huge depth chart.

Until this year I guess...

Anyways, yeah, it's obvious the West is much more powerful than the East... the Eastern Conference teams are so guard heavy... Iverson, Kidd, James, Davis... when it gets to playoff time, they cannot compete with the West, because of the lack of big men, this will become obvious in about 2 months... when the playoffs start again.

Well The East Had Always Historically Been Weak But We Just Happened To Have Some Guy Named Jordan...

There Is No Doubt The West Is Stacked And Runs Circles Around The East...But Look At The Player Lineups...Compare Sac To Toronto...There Are Huge Discrepencies League Wide...This Is Due To Salray Caps, And Like Exo Said Some Players Takin' Cuts To Play For Contenders...

XXX 1996 Dallas
XXIX 1995 San Francisco
XXVIII 1994 Dallas
XXVII 1993 Dallas
XXVI 1992 Washington
XXV 1991 N.Y. Giants
XXIV 1990 San Francisco
XXIII 1989 San Francisco
XXII 1988 Washington
XXI 1987 N.Y. Giants
XX 1986 Chicago
XIX 1985 San Francisco

13 straight championships for the NFC. That is called one division being more dominant than the other. It doesn't matter what sport it is. Am I making myself clear now, or should I go on?

shut up you

well, as a Nets fan, I hate to say it, but the East is pitiful as of late....maybe the NBA should divide their leagues into North and South, or northwest and Southeast, lol....but seriously, the nets, and maybe the Celtics, are the only two teams that even have a chance at the title this year, but nonetheless, it looks like the West will be dominant in the years to come...

LMFAO@Celtics contending for the title That was supposed to be a joke, right? Boston is actually on the outside of the playoff picture looking in. What I think you meant to say, is that the only teams in the East that might be able to compete for the title are the Nets, Pistons, and Pacers. Outside of those three teams, I don't think the East has a chance. With those three teams, the East's chance is still slim to none, and slim just got the fuck outta dodge

I see your point about being a dominant division... but, this is an NBA thread, so lets keep it NBA... there was no point in making a comparison between two sports that are so much different... do you see my point? Or should I continue on? And point out the differences?

When error said it seemed to happen a lot in the nba, I pointed out that it happens in other sports too, then went on to explain why it might be more apparant in the NBA. I know it went straight over your head and for that I'm sorry. It must be a hard concept for you to grasp, comparing 2 profesional national sports leagues is like talking about apples and oranges as far as your concerened. I mean honestly, what could they possibly have in common But you had to chime in with your rolleyed, douche bag comment and make a fool out of yourself. Next time, think before you try to contradict me and you won't look like a moron again for missing the point.

How many times do I have to put you in your place before you learn?
